Marbletown is a leading community in the movement to shift to 100% renewable energy. The Marbletown ECC is completing a strategy for that transition with assistance from Sustainable Hudson Valley. Marbletown has already taken an unusually wide range of initiatives:
- Adopting Community Choice Aggregation which switches most Marbletown residents and small businesses to renewable electricity at a lower price than they currently pay.
- Reducing Marbletown’s energy use by reducing streetlights and converting streetlights to LED, and by retrofitting Town government buildings.
- Promoting solar, energy efficiency, and renewable heating and cooling to Town residents.
